    • B.

    Correct Answer
    C. 12 MONTHS IN BARREL & 36 MONTHS IN BOTTLE
    Explanation
    A 'Reserva' red wine is classified as having spent 12 months in barrel and 36 months in the bottle. This aging process allows the wine to develop more complex flavors and aromas, as well as soften the tannins. The extended time in barrel helps the wine integrate with the oak, while the additional time in the bottle allows the flavors to further develop and mature. Overall, this classification indicates a higher quality and more refined red wine.
